In case I haven’t made it clear yet, Napa Valley might just be my favorite place on earth. It’s my happy place. The perfect place to wear a watercolor dress, a maxi dress, or a ginormous hat with a big, fat bow. My recent trip was my third trip in a year and a half to wine country, and my first-ever trip to Calistoga.
During my time in Napa, I stayed at the Brannan Cottage Inn in Calistoga. This boutique inn has only six rooms – making it the perfect spot to stay on a romantic getaway or to rent out for a girls’ getaway – and offers truly amazing individualized guest attention.
What I’m Wearing:
DRESS: SIMILAR, SIMILAR, SIMILAR / SHOES: ASOS / PURSE: J.CREW FACTORY
EARRINGS: KENDRA SCOTT, OLD (SIMILAR) / RING: BAUBLEBAR
SUNGLASSES: KAREN WALKER VIA DITTO, C/O (USE CODE “GLITTERANDSPICE” FOR 1ST MONTH FREE)
During my stay, the Brannan Cottage Inn arranged the most amazing excursions for me and my friend. Coordinating with Luxury Electric Wine Tours, a local company that offers personalized tours (with a driver) using only all-electric vehicles, Brannan Cottage Inn sent us on the wine tour to end all wine tours. In a Tesla. So fun!
After enjoying a lazy morning (complete with breakfast in bed!), we were picked up, sparkling wine in hand, and shepherded over to Silver Trident Winery. Silver Trident was probably my favorite winery of the day. The tasting room is gorgeously designed (all Ralph Lauren!) and the sauvignon blanc and the rose were delicious. We then visited Quixote Winery, enjoyed lunch at Farmstead – home to what was quite possibly one of the best burgers I’ve ever had (pictured above) – and finished up our tasting at Del Dotto Vineyards (their cave tour is positively incredible). I so highly recommend reaching out to Luxury Electric Wine Tours on your next trip out to Napa… and definitely request Adam if you do a Tesla tour – he and his wife own the company and he knows Napa Valley like the back of his hand!
On our second day, Brannan Cottage Inn arranged for us to go on a tasting and tour at Davis Estates. Oh my gosh. If you have an eye for interior design (or just like pretty things), I so highly recommend going. It was seriously the most gorgeous winery I’ve ever visited (and I’ve been to my fair share!). Really just par for course on this picturesque, gorgeous trip!
